Beatnik provides branding and web, print and graphic design services for organisations working in the hospitality, arts, science and pharmaceuticals sectors throughout the UK.

Its Scottish base is located at Hudson House on Albany Street.

Founder and creative director David Haigh said the Scottish addition would help Beatnik to secure new clients.

He said: “Launching our Edinburgh office is the next step in the organic evolution, allowing us to attract clients in the heart of this creative hub.

“I’m excited to expand our talented team in a thriving city alongside businesses who are having global impact.

“Our clients span the UK and it makes sense to expand our physical and visible presence into Scotland. Edinburgh is a vibrant city with a strong business community.

“The new base will allow Beatnik to continue to deliver exceptional work for our clients when it comes to branding, online (Shopify and Wordpress) and offline sales and marketing channels.

“We pride ourselves on delivering exceptionally high level of service and we aim to become long-term partners with our clients, not just a one-off service provider in the city.”
